Welcome to my gear review blog! In the late 2000s I was in college and just getting into the wide world of guitar amp modeling. Even then it was a pretty varied field, with a lot of different technologies (and no small number of buzzwords) competing for their spot on the market. I specialized in analytical reviews and comparisons, and the old content is still there if you’re interested. And I’d like to say a big thank-you to everyone who visited my blog over the years. It meant and means a whole lot to me.
Anyone who’s been here more recently knows that I haven’t been able to update it in some time. Life took some really insane turns when my back went out on me in the biggest way ever in 2012. Had to make a lot of hard choices and said goodbye to a lot of great equipment. Now, on the other side of surgery, moved from Arkansas to Colorado Springs, after losing a hundred twenty pounds so far after rededicating my life to fitness , I find that I have a little free time and a serious itch to play guitar.
Of course, for me, that comes with a serious itch to find out what’s going on in today’s amp modeling. I decided since I’m closest to having a full IKMM collection, I’d go ahead and get current on Amplitube 4 and see what’s been going on there – then branch out into reviews and comparisons from there, as I can. I’m working on content right now and hope to begin publishing about a week’s worth of stuff on Amplitube 4 next week. I still need to familiarize myself with the modern plugin landscape on the free software side of things, but that content will be coming too.
Thanks for coming! Thanks for staying, if you have! Welcome, if you’re new, and to all of ya, hang in there with me and we’ll discover some excellent sounds together.
